Philippe Baghdassarian: "I was browsing eBay and came across this guy who smashes stuff "calls it art" and then sells it for more, in this case 14,800$."
Hell yeah, some idiot is going to buy that, mark my words... If Ebay doesn't take it down first lol.
Yeah, makes me think.... maybe I should become an "artist" too :P
Shhh, don't give people the idea! I'm busy breaking all my systems right now...
Yep , i just smashed my xbox 360. Most artistic thing i've ever done. Now where the fuck did I put my Vita ?
I don't know why Ebay takes down these ridiculous auctions, anyway. They make money and if someone wants to buy a piece of half burnt toast with the image of Jesus Christ AND Elvis on it, it's their right to do so!
Because eBay is sold out to vendors now... used to be so awesome when it was individual people selling their crap, but it has become a worthless site. The 1 million dollar random piece of just was always there for s#!ts and giggles. Now days companies will threaten to sue eBay if their product is made to look bad, so eBay will remove listings. They also have to worry about buyers purchasing something fraudulent, and it coming back on them. PS: NEVER buy perfume or cologne on eBay... it is fake 99.9999% of the time.
Ebay isn't going to take something down just because its in poor taste. Way too big brother censorship. (unless its something a lot more over the top like real body parts or kiddy porn)
Why is smashed, and so much?!? "Did Oprah sit on it?"
It's super smashed bro.
HAHA! Very punny!
That was awesome
Reminds me of that Simpsons episode when Homer messed up the BBQ set, lol.
LMAO. Good times. "English side ruined! Must use French instructions! Le Grill? What the hell is that?" Or WHY DOESN"T MINE LOOK LIKE THAT! AAAHHHH!
Must've had an update...............
he added value to his wii u.. If he sells it, i will lmao & possibly create my own masterpiece
I'm pretty sure he will, that's the sad part lol... if he doesn't that's a epic fail though :P
LOL it probably still works...My Gamecube fell down a flight of stairs and worked just fine... :) I was just kidding about the Wii U still working though.
Lol About half of my N64 I got 15 yrs. Ago is broken off, still plays like a dream.
You know, that is something I've always respected about Nintendo's consoles... They are all freakishly durable.
aahhh... that's one fine looking wiiu setup... why doesn't mine look like that!?
I smash better than him
Cool story Hulk
Hulk get mad. Hulk smash
inf3cted1 SMASH ..grrrrrrrrrrrrrrahhhhhhhhh
This has already been done, but better. Non story.
Wow thats really rare to find, bet its worth alot <_< NOT!!! This isn't a shock, I seen a guy selling a Xbox (not Xbox 360) for over $1,000 bucks. What does it come with? Nothing, no cables or even a controller and it isn't a limited Ed. model too. People like to over price things for no reason, heck I seen a guy trying to sell moded 20GB 360's for the price of a new 360 Slim 250GB. An the modding he didn't wasn't even worth it.
Yeah when I was browsing through eBay I saw some guy selling Zelda Twilight Princess in the box for 20,000$... It's not worth ANYTHING close to that :P
they always think there's someone somewhere(uninformed parents maybe?) that would buy it.
ill bet the os on the masterpeice is faster than than the wiiu`s. even a rock is fadter!
Haha! So funny, I wish my U was fadter too! Fuck-n troll...
It looked like he smashed a bunch of broken Wii Us together and made a hideous robot statue with it. No wonder it cost so much...
looks like a 5th grade class project.. I love art.....not so much a fan of this guy's stuff though.
looks good all smashed up just saying. ;)
I liked it when people were selling an 'Xbox box' on ebay for hundreds of dollars each.
And this guy must be smoking too much crack what kind of idiot would buy a broken console for 15,000$ it's not art it's DUMB
Some die hard Nintendo collector will be all over that.
Could've just bought a bunch of black plastic melted it and said it was from a Wii U.. As usual these article titles are so misleading. No he didn't just smash it he built some piece of "Art" with it. Stupid article titles for hits..
Next Generation Robotic consoles
Who in their right mind would buy a smashed console that is basically a glorified paper weight for fifteen grand? Just because this guy claims it's "art"? No, just no.
He might have actually added value to it.
And this beautiful piece is titled "Rich idiot flushes 15,000 down the toilet"
I'm going to start throwing up on things and selling them for thousands of dollars
What a shame when there are people who can not even afford a broken gameboy ... that is what he calls art? I shit in an empty box and sell it as art: merde de artiste, how low some "artists" can get ...where is the dignity? For 15, 000 dollars? This person deserves to be slapped in the face ...
What a dumbass.
